MUDSLIDE IN WASHINGTON

A mudslide in Bellevue has prompted the evacuation of four homes and closed a portion of West Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast. Bellevue Fire Lt. Troy Donlin says no one was injured, but mud reached three homes while a fourth was evacuated out of precaution. He says the mud has covered half of the road, heavily used by commuters, and is spread over about 40 feet in length. Meanwhile, Bellevue city officials are responding to a break in a 6-foot water main on West Lake Sammamish Drive. The water has been shut off. A portion of that road has also been closed until further notice. It was unclear whether the main break caused the mudslide or the mudslide caused the main break.
